Splish-Slash: It's a Summer Time Blog Bash

8:30 AM Sarah Koves 1 Comments



I am very excited for this party as it has been a long time in the making.




One my most popular posts in on Social Studies Bell Ringers.  I decided to create this product after finding out that the book I use is no longer available to individual teachers and must be purchased through the school's representative.

This product is one month of social studies bell work based on the five themes of geography: location, region, movement, place, and human-environment interaction. Two questions for each day of the week. Answer key included.



I am giving away my month of Daily Geography for free during this blog hop.  Be sure to snag it now (an leave it some love) because it won't be free for long.



I am giving away my budget unit.  This is my best selling unit, and can be used for most grade levels.

The Teacher Team did a great review of this product this past February.  Check out their review.



I am currently using this project with some 11th graders while we talk about personal finance.  I began this product with middle school students over ten years ago, and I have been adding to and revising it ever since.  This unit includes a writing piece at the end for reflection on the costs of items and living within a budget.
  Be sure to go check out the preview too.



My summer vacation begins on June 6th, and I am already planning a fun summer.

I am most looking forward to not teaching summer school, which I have given up after five years.  The new teachers want to do it, so I get to start vacation when school is out.

My favorite summer activity is sitting on the deck reading with a fruity drink in my hand while the girls swim.  Although the quiet mornings with me, the cat, and coffee are  close second.

We have a family camping weekend planned to Wisconsin to meet up with my cousins, and I have a conference at Great Wolf Lodge, but there is no major traveling this summer other than North to my parents' house.  Perhaps we will finally get to IKEA.

My favorite summer place is my parents' home in Northern Michigan.  We get to play tourist, enjoy the quiet, and go to the beach frequently.  The girls and I are even happier now that they have joined the 21st century with high speed internet.

My summer must-have item is currently a pair of sunglasses as I found mine broken in the bottom of my purse.  Please leave me your favorites in the comments, so the shopping can commence. 

I have started my summer pile of teaching books to read (thanks in part to a Donors Choose project).  I hope to share what I learn as I work through them.
